In the past I'd heard of British brand Ted and Muffy (formerly Duo), and knew that they offered different calf sizes. However, a quick visit to their website confirmed that their boots were out of my price range, with their knee high boots starting at around £225. I forgot about them for months and months to be honest. Then, this January, I visited their website once more, to find to my delight they were holding a 70% off sale! Now that's my kind of discount. I found I was spoilt for choice with a range of really rather lovely knee high boots, and it wasn't long until I found their 'Cosima' style, and a ray of golden light shone down upon my computer screen as I clicked 'Buy'. Originally £250, I purchase them for £125.
Boots: 'Cosima', Ted and Muffy (last pairs now £110, be quick!)
Dress: F&F, via charity shop
Pagoda Umbrella: Charity one (brand new)
Baker Boy Hat: Unbranded, Ebay
Bag: From on hols in Spain!
The quality is very, very good. The softest leather. Fully lined. The smell when you open the box and dig through those layers of tissue paper is wonderful. As for fit? These are the best fitting boots I've bought in quite some years. Being really critical, they are indeed very snug on the calf, but the leather will ease. On my long legs they could be even taller. They are not quite as well fitted at the ankle, but it does mean the range of movement is non-restrictive. In terms of comfort, they're just brilliant. I broke them in around the house for an afternoon
I bet if I was to visit one of the Ted and Muffy stores I could come away with a pair of boots that fit me 100% accurately. The closest one to me is in Bath, so I think I'll pop in next time I'm visiting the city.
What is your personal boot Holy Grail? And have you found it yet?
